Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Circle left now
*Sitting in the morning sun
I'll be sitting when the evening comes

Men star right, go once around now
Left allemande that corner and weave that ring
I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Dosado and promenade your lady back home
I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay, wasting time


FIGURE    Basic, no progression

4 ladies chain across now
Heads square thru 5 hands around
Sides separate, star thru, then your corner lady swing
Left allemande and then you weave that old ring
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Dosado and promenade your lady back home
Sittin' on the dock of the bay, wasting time


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the Frisco Bay

*Sitting here resting my bones
This loneliness won't leave me alone

Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay Lyrics ID: 640

Sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' come
Watching the ships roll in
And then I watch 'em roll away again, yeah

I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooo, I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the 'Frisco bay
'Cause I've had nothing to live for
And look like nothin's gonna come my way

So I'm just gonna sit on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooo, I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

Look like nothing's gonna change
Everything still remains the same
I can't do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I'll remain the same, yes

Sittin' here resting my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
It's two thousand miles I roamed
Just to make this dock my home

Now, I'm just gonna sit at the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Oooo-wee, sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

(whistle)

Lyrics by Otis Redding and Steve Cropper.
